Locked my phone messing with the puk code now it has rejected my sim card how do i get it back two were i can use my phone is there any codes to unlock it


PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

How can I find the PUK code?


This problem occur very frequently because we want to keep our phone secretly. or sometimes it occurs by mistake.It arises when we put security code incorrectly three-five times.Here PUK is a sim pin code,we could not unlock this without the helping hand of the particular sim card provider or costumer care.So contact your sim provider.But, remember don't enter the puk incorrectly 10 times to avoid "Sim Card Rejected"
Good luck

Give me unlock key for imei 35664005162345


There are two type of phone lock:-

1. Sim Lock

2. Phone lock

Sim unlock: To unlock sim ask pin or puk no from your mobile service provider and then enter the no to unlock, if you get the msg as sim rejected then you have to go for a new sim card to activate your number

Phone Unlock: To unlock phone with IMEI no is not easy you must know the phone unlock number and it may differ with user( Nokia common Unlock code is 12345 or 0000), you better go to Nokia service center and update the software to unlock the phone easily and it cost only Rs:400.

Thank you.

PUK CODE FOR SGH-i607


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
